We've put together a list of everything you need to know on running a successful online sale fundraiser.
1. Promote your sale and get momentum
To begin making progress towards your fundraising goals, you’ll need to get your sale fundraiser in front of as many people as possible. Sharing your fundraiser with the greatest number of potential donors increases exposure and may make others more likely to share your cause with people in their network, too. There are many strategies you can use to promote your fundraiser, but we’ve compiled a list of our best tips here.
2. Keep your supporters engaged
Your communication with your donors shouldn’t end once they’ve contributed to your cause. You can keep them engaged throughout your fundraiser’s duration with status updates and other newsworthy info. Click here to learn how to keep them in the loop.
3. Be responsive to your donors
MemberHub has made it simple for supporters to email you directly with questions from your campaign page. This facilitates a strong relationship among donors and campaign managers, which we believe is important to any fundraiser’s success. Be sure to reply so you don’t miss out on any inquiries regarding donations or other important matters.
4. Deliver the items sold
With sale fundraisers, you’ll need to deliver the items that have been sold after donors have made their purchases. We’ve made it easy to access and export a list of all the items purchased on your fundraiser to see detailed order and delivery information. This will allow you to fulfill your deliveries hassle-free.
5. Utilize your campaign’s donor data
The exported donor data you’ll use for deliveries can also be helpful for planning and promoting your next fundraiser. Just export your donor data and add it to your CRM and mailing lists. Find out how to access this report in a few simple steps here.
